Rome’s Christmas tree lights up for first time by solar power, has pro-SDGs gifts
This year for the first time the lights on Rome’s Christmas tree are generated by solar power in line with the campaign’s messages relating to energy conservation and responsible consumption. The system allows a reduction of CO2 emissions of 17.55 kg/day which, for the entire duration of the lighting of the tree, are equivalent to 526 kg of CO2.
As part of the campaign, FAO, together with the city of Rome and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, are inviting citizens and visitors to play their part in addressing a range of challenges at a time when in many parts of the world, people, especially the most vulnerable, have been suffering the effects of higher costs for energy, food and other primary goods.
“This holiday season, we are calling on all people living in Rome and beyond to join us and unite in solidarity, and with passion, as a community to help build a peaceful and sustainable world where no one is left behind,” the FAO Director-General said. “FAO is proud to be hosted by a city that shares our vision and is deeply grateful to the Government of Italy for the close collaboration as we work together to accomplish FAO’s mandate for a better future,” he added.
